Compressor settings on drums: future sound engineers subjective choice
2007 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

Compression is one of the most important tools in modern music production. Yet there is no research conducted on the subject. It is also thought that there is no best compressor setting. The purpose of this study is to find which compressor settings future sound engineers subjectively think sound best on drums. A listening test was performed where test subjects were given five sounds with different compressor settings and were asked to choose the setting they thought sounded best. 15 individuals did the listening test and the results show a wide spread of choices. One of the problems was that there were very small audible differences between the settings. Another problem was there might be different opinions of what ‘best’ is.
